As well as putting up random crap on my website, I'll also be sharing with you some of the music I've been listening to. First up is Lemon Jelly's album called Lost Horizons. If you like your chillout music then this album really is a must for Chrimbo. Lemon Jelly have been making quality music for ages and this is one of the best albums of the year. It's a exceptional blend of just about every musical instrument and some of the most bizarre spoken word samples I've heard. It's very hard not to smile when you hear this pompous English guy singing 'All the ducks are swimming in the water...Fa La La La La La'. It's a very different sound than the Cafe del Mar stuff which some of you have heard, but it's just brilliant. Pick of the songs from the album is Nice Weather for Ducks which is a track filled with strings, synth and a superb trumpet melody which makes you jump up and shake yo' ass!!. With the weather being so crap outside buy this album, stick it on and imagine your miles away. Great for relieving stress!!! Click here to buy online from CD - WOW for £8.99! What a gift!!!

And may I add seasons to that. For surely the celebrations of our Saviour's birth are but a matter of weeks away. And it's hard isn't it not to get caught up in the general hype of Christmas, even tho it is the start of December. The decorations were up in Tesco about 4 weeks ago which is ridiculous. Halloween had just finished and up comes the flippin' holly et al. I wonder if the fact that everybody thinks about Christmas earlier makes it a bit easier on Santa. Think about it....Kids are seeing the toys they want earlier and so they're sending their letters to Santa away earlier, which gives him more time to get it sorted. Probably puts a lot less strain on the marriage as he can have more free time over the next couple of weeks to spend with Mrs. Claus........Just a thought....
